Ann Arbor City Council – Ward 2
Jared Hoffert is a commercial operations director for Accenture, a consulting firm, working with the client Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Michigan. This is his first bid for elected office. He is unopposed in the Ward 2 Democratic primary. Hoffert likely will face incumbent Jane Lumm, an independent, in the Nov. 7 general election.
NOTE: Because Hoffert is unopposed in the Democratic primary, the city will NOT hold an election in Ward 2 on Aug. 8.
Hoffert is active in the theater community, and serves on the board of the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre. He has performed in many theater productions, most recently in A2CT's "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" in the role of Chairman/Mayor Thomas Sapsea. He previously served on advisory committees for The Croswell Opera House in Adrian, Michigan, and was on the New York Choral Society's Board of Managers. He earned a BFA in theatre performance from the University of Michigan in 1995.
Hoffert is married to Julia Hoffert. They have a daughter and live near Sugarbush Park on Ann Arbor's northeast side.
Hoffert's campaign treasurer is Linh Song, a current Ann Arbor District Library trustee.
